    hey guys, so I have an issue
    I applied for Un in November and I rushed into it so I chose courses im no longer interested in. is it going to be possible for me to change courses ( I know its after the deadline) but what about clearing or adjusting? or are there other options?
    can someone explain the process in clearing and their experiences?
    I really need advice

    What course did you apply for, and what course do you want to change too?

    You need to call UCAS. They're going to give you a clear explanation on what you can/need to do

    I wouldn't worry too much about it - most uni's have a policy whereby you can switch your degree within your first year (or in Scotland the first 2 years) of your studies to a completely new discipline providing you have got the grades.

    I know many people at my University who have switched their degree because they were not happy with their initial subject choice.

    So if I were you, I would do one of 2 things:

    - Accept the course even though you don't think you'll be interested in the subject area and switch your degree when you get there (make sure they do the other course you like, and check to see if the uni allows you to switch between other degree programmes)

    - Or decline your offers you get over the coming months and apply via clearing, or apply again at the end of this year.

    I have applied for animation courses but im looking to do maybe fine art.
    my main concern is the universities I have chosen and not necessarily my course.
